It is with a heavy heart that the Officers and Members of the Chillum Adelphi Volunteer Fire Department announce the passing of Past Fire Chief William “Rudy” Radisch.
Chief Radisch became a member of the Brentwood Volunteer Fire Department in 1951 and later joined the Chillum Adelphi Volunteer Fire Department in 1959. He served the CAVFD in numerous positions including Fire Chief from 1977-1979. He served on numerous committees for the Prince George’s County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association and served on the county’s accident review board for many years. Chief Radisch served the citizens of Prince George’s County for 64 years. He also served in the Navy and was retired from the District of Columbia Fire Department.
He was well respected and loved by so many people. The fire service has lost a legend. Please keep Betty, John, Jimmy and the entire Radisch family in your thoughts and prayers.
